    I DON’T COUNT WEEKENDS



    It’s Saturday night
    And I’m sitting outside
    Hoping the trees whisper a breeze to caress my body for comfort

    The stars are laughing at me
    Cause I’m humming love songs to the moon
    These dazed lyrics share with me the memory of love

    I’m wishing that the next car that rides by,
    bumps to the beat of my heart
    I’m hoping he’ll stop just to say
    Pretty faces with warm vibrations should never be alone
    Wanting to feel emotions for an untouched soul
    So here is the missing piece to complete your whole

    But reality hits me
    My heart starts shivering
    Flashbacks of the nights that my love seat was empty
    Trying hard not to call Mr. Do It All but hold me
    Unfelt messages left on the answering machine
    Trying to make believe love is calling me, singing with me

    So I figure I’ll ride the wave of song waiting impatiently
    But if that scene never plays a part for me
    And that tune never plays on my radio
    I’ll be flowing alone to my own demo

    Singing
    I’m waiting for love
    Wanting for love
    Tasting the thought of love
    I’ll never give up No I’ll never give up

    wow It's been a long while since i've visited this sight and this poem was a great reason for me to keep coming back. Thank you this was filled with emotion, imagery and very skillfully written and easy to relate to. Maybe even too easy.

    Wow.

    You blessed those words by putting them in this write.

    What a gift you have to be able to write so eloquently, I want to see more.

    *deep sigh...I was really feeling this poet. Your descriptive verse was both beautiful and painful at the same time, for amongst all that beauty still lived a lonely heart. Well done.
